    It's you that is going to be there for the next 3 years so what your friends/teachers think shouldn't count. Also basing your choice on league tables is not a good idea.

    But also substantially increases your ability to network effectively, visit LSE lectures/public events and do all the other stuff that only comes with living in London.

    I'd pick City.

    Networking capabilities are so immense in London. However employability should be but one aspect of the many variables you should consider.

    ive been to city and it looks okk.. bt the only reason i chose to apply there cos it was reasonably close to home and its in london.. also i know people who go there and the social aspect of it is quite good.

    i havent had the chance to visit manchester cos itss too far lol :P

    i think employability is better in city.. its meant to be the best uni for employment but i dont want to be just employed.. i want a decent job

    sooo still erghh
    maybe i'll try to visit manchester after june exams and decide with that
    thanks
